Concert promises something for everyone

Music professor emeritus David Palmer presents a program that promises “Something for Everyone” when he takes to the organ at All Saints’ Anglican Church for a performance Wednesday, May 29, at 7 p.m.

“My selections will feature composers whose anniversaries fall in 2013, a brilliant Canadian composer and then composers who see treat the organ with humour and whimsy,” says Palmer.

He will open with Prelude and Fugue in C major by Johann Krebs, proceed to Ottawa-based composer Rachel Laurin’s Prelude and Fugue and Salamanca by the Swiss organist-composer Guy Bovet. Next up is Britannia Waives the Rules by British composer Simon Lesley.

“Finally,” Palmer says, “our favourite pet dogs and cats come to mind in pieces by Canadian Denis Bédard and American Robin Dinda.”

All Saints’ Church is located at 330 City Hall Square West. Admission is by donation, with proceeds to benefit the church.
